In Support Of The Nikon Café

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by greyflash, May 9, 2007.

  1. Every six months or so I consider my support of the Nikon Café and make a donation. I have enjoyed the Café since its inception several years ago. It is a friendly place and one that I come to in order to learn and grow as a photographer. I enjoy my interface with other members and the clutter free, no advertising that is here. It gives me an opportunity to share some of my photographs and hopefully share what little talent I have with others.

    We have many new members over the past year and some of them may not realize that the Café exists solely on the support of the membership and the generosity of the founders, Patrick Bramlet and Frank Wilson. The bandwidth that we utilize and the hardware is not free. I know that Patrick and Frank appreciate the support that the Café has realized over the years but let's not any of us forget that the expense of running this site is ongoing. I hope that those of you who have not made a donation recently will consider doing so today or in the near future.

    For those with PayPal, it is as simple as clicking on the red "donate" button at the top of the home page. For those without PayPal, a check or MO directly to Patrick Bramlett would be the way to go. Neither Patrick or Frank has asked that I compose this post but I do know that the funds are needed and encourage you to be generous in making a contribution. I love this place and those who frequent it.
     
  2. I'll second that sentiment, Gordon. I belong to other camera forums, but this one just feels more like "home" to me. I just donated recently, but am planning on making it a regular habit. Thanks for the reminder.
     
  3. Thanks Shaun, I am certain that Patrick appreciated your donation.
     
  4. Completely agree with this post and I believe this site is a worthwhile place to put your donations if you value having a family safe place to come to gather a wealth of information about photography.

  6. Thanks, we work hard to keep it that way.

    I am certain that it will be much appreciated.
     
  7. Thanks for the reminder just put in my $.
    Sometime you have to be reminded if you want a site without popups and spam you have to kick in a few to keep it that way.
    Now I just have to remember what card my account is tied to 8-(

    Don't forget about the Caps and Patches.

    I just purchased a Nikon Cafe' cap just a while ago.

    Being a newbie here, I didn't know how to make a donation. I don't have a Paypal account, but would be more than happy to send a money order to Patrick (or Frank). I guess the best way would be to PM Patrick to get mailing instructions .... or is it listed somewhere here in the FAQ's??

    Thanks Leigh! The next time I'm at the post office, I'll get a money order and send it to you. Give me a few days, with postage going up on Monday, I think that place will be a tad busy for the next couple of days!

    I'd like to take the opportunity to publically thank all of you who have shown your support to the cafe. Not only this time but in previous times. Its greatly appreciated.

    I've sent emails to each of you with a personalized note but I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you here as well.

    On behalf of the entire cafe,

    Thanks and regards to you and yours,
